2020 celebrates the 11th successful year of the New Media Film Festival®. To be held on the 3rd and 4th of June 2020 at The Landmark in Los Angeles, the award-wining festival is an annual event not to be missed. It provides an unparalleled opportunity for established and emerging creators of New Media Content to showcase their talents and present their stories to the world. Will you be one of those creators?
When you add this to the long list of firsts they’ve achieved, the organizers behind the New Media Film Festival® certainly have a lot to be proud of. Highlights from that list include being the first festival to celebrate ‘innovation, story, mediums and platforms’, the first to screen AI created film, show collaborative virtual reality content, host an AR International Art Exhibit, and distribute micro content. The Festival also believes in giving back and over the years has supported a wide range of non-profit ventures including the Sea Research Foundation, EyeCare4Kids, Solartopia, weSpark, and more.
There will be over 20 sections available including Augmented Reality, Digital Comic, Drone, Mobile, New Media, Pilot, Podcast, Web Series, Virtual Reality, 5D. Old favorites like Animation, Documentary, Feature, Music Video, Script, Shorts, Sniplers – 30 second pitch®, Student, and Trailers will also make a reappearance. In short, there will be stories for everyone “created by people of all ages – from all cultures and all media.” Some of the stories will be having their World
Premier at the Festival, whilst for others it will be their first screening in Los Angeles. Additionally, almost all nominations receive distribution and funding opportunities, even those not accepted to compete and screen at the festival.
Along with technology giveaways, global event invites, and various other significant prizes there’s $45,000 in Grand Prize, Best in Category and Audience Award. The Festival will also offer an Emmys® Award Consultant for one lucky entrant. Participants further have the opportunity to socialize and network, are provided with a marketing table, can participate in Q and A’s and panels, enjoy social events, live music and more. There’s even a red carpet event!
